How can luxury residential buildings stand out in a crowded market? Adding art to the public spaces is an increasingly common way. This art can come even as early as the building phase, with an eye-catching wrap, or be built in to the building, such as Anish Kapoor’s 3D sculpture that seems to support the mezzanine of 56 Leonard. It can even be functional adding dioramas evoking the Museum of Natural History in building playrooms.
Art is no longer an afterthought in real estate. It has become a prominent part of the design process.
